Easy Ribbed Dishcloth – Free Crochet Pattern

Easy Ribbed Dishcloth - Free Crochet Pattern
Do you love handmade dishcloths as much as I do? They are just so useful! You can use them to clean dishes, of course, but beyond that you can use them for potholders and hot pads, to clean the counter tops and stove, sop up accidental spills, and as a washcloth in the bath and shower.

There are a TON of great dishcloth patterns out there for both crochet and knitting. Lots of options for images and textures, and they are great for trying out new stitches. What I like about this particular crochet dishcloth is it works up quick. Really quick. We are talking under an hour per cloth. Working in the back loop only (BL only) gives it a nice texture, too. Because it’s such an easy crochet pattern, a beginner could definitely tackle this.

Craftsy

An “I” hook (5.5mm) gave me a perfect square, so check your gauge if you care about that. It measured approximately 7-1/2″ by 7-1/2″ without blocking. You could easily make this dishcloth larger by chaining more and working more rows, just keep track of your numbers if you are particular about making a square. If you chain 31, you’ll single crochet in the second chain from the hook and each across giving you 30 single crochet. So you’ll want to do 30 rows, too. Your number when you are single crocheting around the sides for the edging would be 28, with 3 single crochets in each corner. If you don’t want to think about math, just follow the pattern as written and you’ll do just fine.
